American Cancer Society
Elle Marie Hair Studio is partnering with the American Cancer Society locally out of Everett, WA! All hair donations are gifted to the ACS who send the hair to Pantene. Pantene then makes wigs out of the hair at no cost through their Beautiful Lengths program. The wigs are then sent back to ACS in Everett who provide them to cancer patients in our area. They are made available free of charge, no questions asked. Learn about Snohomish County’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.
Relay for Life
When possible, we love to participate in our local Relay for Life events.

Make a Change Foundation
The Make A Change Foundation was formed in 2012 after several years of localized collection for Toys For Tots of King and Snohomish Counties. It was clear that year after year the motivation and giving spirit amongst our donors to make a change was growing by leaps and bounds. The Make A Change foundation, or “MAC Foundation” as we call it, was born out of a desire to recognize our donors and be able to provide more for the charities that we carefully select while in part honoring Francis “Brownie” Brown, our Vice-President’s late father. Brownie was a World War II Veteran who loved his country, loved kids and saved his pennies year round for Children’s Orthopedic Hospital. Today his memory lives on in the smiles of children who gain independence and moments of love and happiness in a sometimes unforgiving world. We are here to make a change and we’d love for you to join in with us.
In recent years, a strong relationship has evolved between the MAC Foundation and Hand in Hand Kids of Everett. Elle Marie is proud to support those efforts and gladly accepts donations, both monetary as well as bikes and toys, at all salons during November and December.

- ALDERWOOD – $1,291.90
- LAKE STEVENS – $286.89
- MILL CREEK – $472.51

United Way of Snohomish County
On March 22nd, 2014 the community of Oso, WA was rocked by a devastating landslide that took the lives of 43 people in Snohomish County.
